Morning, everybody. How you doing today? Welcome to another show another close at end of the week today. I want to talk to you about getting the most you can talk to this topic come from I watch yesterday show podcast count your blessings that you did not have to see after that was yesterday's episode.

It was a train wreck. In fact, the footage looks like it was filmed during a train wreck long ago was trying out some understood how to use obviously smartphone stabilizer Gimbal and a new app to stream Twitter. Natively a couple things happen their first of all the video orientation messed up that's due to the software and normally pretty shaky.

So if I'm doing the monkey arm extended, you'll see a little bit of shake and vibration front camera on an iPhone doesn't have any stabilization with the fact one has some stabilisation. So I try to compensate for that normally shoot on a tripod like I am even if it's a mini tripod for travel should have saved by some of the footage but it's not really good at micro macro, but I didn't understand as well as I thought I did so crazy and I apologize for that but it didn't really too great topics for today is that you need to understand the tools that you're using now.

Running security and understands the tools and here's a weird thing that I want you to keep in the back of your head. It's far better to know a less capable than it is. Just abusing a couple little features in a far more capable. And the reason I should have not been an issue should have been able to provide high-quality stream to you regardless of where I was wasn't able to because I didn't understand it truly.

Back to Basics today, I'm using my mobile case here in the studio, but I got a far more simple set up a Go phone microphone plugged hardwired into that phone on a stable tripod with a little bit of a life. That's it much higher quality stream much more watchable.

I hope and you know, I know this kid inside. I know what can go wrong and over the challenges are I know how to adjust. Okay, so lesser capable, but far more easy to operate from my personal understanding and training level. We see the same thing as security tools all the time, but then they don't even know how to operate it or use it the same deal with G Suite has has been such a massive Verizon in the audience, even though it's far less capable than let's save Microsoft Office is because it's good at what people use the most people don't even crack.

Surface of excel Excel is an insanely capable spreadsheet tool data analytics tool. Most people don't use any of it. Right? They use some, some more advanced. All that stuff is it useful to most cases in that people can understand it and know the edges in the boundaries of that to a far better than a can of something.

That's something we see again. And again the security people will get like, you know, they'll go for a certain type of tool and they won't necessarily understand all the capabilities of our subs a small subset of those capabilities, but they'll never take advantage. You might not be using it properly.

You might be open yourself up to an exposure that you're not aware of a had an anecdote years ago was working with a team. We're rolling out a particular high-end basically ISP grade IPS intrusion prevention system in firewall instructor. This thing was amazing to do anything that we wanted and more but only a couple of us actually understood all of it.

So we kept getting questions and people trying to push configurations that would actually make our security worse because they didn't fully understand extent of the tool was if we were to use a much simpler a smaller subset of features would have understood what I think the key takeaway here is that you need to spend time to truly understand them.

So make sure you're not opening yourself up two additional exposure, but also to make sure that you get the most More complicated more advanced will probably going to cost you more money. You want to make sure that you're getting the most out of it. So good example back to me and mine was crazy capable a whole bunch of stuff that I probably am never going to touch.

So, you know, what sending it back even though it was amazing. I highly recommend it if you need a gimbal if you know how to use a gamble but I'm switching back to a GoPro 7 and which has this hyper stabilization software trickery and to get those stable kind of shots because I know I'm just click the button and I got my footage even though that's a far more capable tool in the smartphone stabilizing gimbal that I had it was for Moby by the way, if you're in the market for one don't go with the DJI reply phenomenal gimbal cinematic quality just capable of so many things that I'll never end up using because it's beyond my capability and it's not an area where I'm going to be leveraging all the time.

So it sent that back when it was a far simpler. Pro setup that's going to give me the stable at shop and I want and which is the click of a button so less capable to but more understood by me the ignorant user and I don't have time to go into the end of the nuances of that gamble.

So a person example there at what do you think about your tools? How do you master them? Do you master them? Do you find the right to let me know online at Mark NCAA for the zoo in the lights much better today comments down below and as always for podcast listeners and everybody else as well meet at Mark n.

Ca for email. I hope you have a fantastic. Friday a wonderful weekend. I will talk to you online and I will see you on the show on Monday. Morning, everybody. How you doing today?
